NOW Foods melatonin 5mg is a terrific product and very good value. I also purchased 10mg by a different brand. I take it because i have difficulties in falling asleep at night. ive used Valerian root before because i learned that valerian Acid triggers a special kind of deep sleep - Slow-Wave Deep Sleep but it doesn't always work for me , or maybe my systems has gotten used to it. so for the last couple of weeks, i have been taking melatonin. it works most nights because my mind just doesn't stop at night. I can say that the quality of the sleep is much better!! great ingredients and very efficient. packaging is convenient - the pill size is also very convenient to swallow. no funny taste I totally recommend
I noticed a rellecant improvement in sleep quality and duration. The ingredient have no taste and the capsule size is ok. If a take the entire dosage i noticed a string headache in the next morning. So i tried to take half portion and it has been working for me with the sleep benefit and without the headache.
I have been buying this brand of Melatonin for several years now as both myself and my grandson need to take it every night. I had previously taken prescribed Melatonin but it was quite expensive and my doctor suggested I buy these as I get 5 months worth for less than one months prescription. They work just as well. Melatonin has been life changing for me after struggling for many years to fall asleep. If I wake during the night I find I can fall back asleep easier as well.
This product is so effective. We tried alternatives as we had run out and they did not work at all. My son sleeps so well and wakes with no side effects except waking fresh and ready for his day. I spoke to a chemist recently to see if there was anything similar, they recommended I continue to order this product with Iherb :)
It's quite effective and helpful. I've been taking it for three weeks about 1 hour prior to bedtime, always at the same time to teach my body when to get ready for sleep. Worked well for me! I also found helpful to open the windows for some fresh air, dim the lights in my bedroom and put the electronics away about the same time. Hope it helps, good luck with getting your proper healthy sleep!
Melatonin level decreases with age, particularly during the perimenopausal period creating sleep problems in women of those age. Not to mention, stress, smoking, exposure to blue light, not getting enough natural light during the day and shift work all affect melatonin production. I don't have severe insomnia, but i do often wake up in the middle of the night (to empty my bladder) and then have trouble falling back to sleep. I suspect i have a Melatonin Deficiency. I tried supplementing with 10mg Melatonin at night and find myself feeling slightly sleepy during the day. Thus i decided to try this 5mg version instead. This dosage works great for me. I do have better sleep patterns now. My goal is to be able to sleep like a baby 😁
I loves this dosage and brand of Melatonin! We the whole range of melatonin from NOW (I personally take this 5mg and 10mg when needed). I loves that it doesn't make me drowsy or groggy in the morning but allows my “tired but wired” body to have a restful, deep night's sleep. My husband travels a lot too, so is often battling jetlag too and finds this 5mg hits to spot when trying to sleep after a long-haul flight. The capsules size is tiny so are super easy to swallow, with no aftertaste or weird sweeteners the gummies and liquids have (save your teeth!) The capsules are small and easy to swallow so no worry for people who have swallowing issues. Highly recommend!
